How do companies reliably protect their intellectual property and know-how when faced with increasing attacks, which are often supported by foreign governments? And how do they effectively deal with insider threats within the law and in line with works council requirements? These are just two of the many questions about data security in industry that VARONIS Systems plans to answer at the Consulting4IT and Serviceware partner stands at HANNOVER MESSE 2019. The specialist in data protection, threat identification and prevention, and compliance is also exhibiting solutions designed to help users adhere to compliance requirements and to protect them against production stoppages caused by ransomware, for instance.
"Attacks are using increasingly sophisticated technology, cyber-criminals are becoming ever more professional and there are also state-supported hackers who have their sights set on intellectual property more than ever before," says Thomas Ehrlich, Country Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland at VARONIS. "At the same time, we have to recognize that perimeter protection just isn't enough anymore when seeking to safeguard these valuable assets. This is where VARONIS comes in, putting data at the very center of the security strategy. By enforcing restrictive access rights and implementing intelligent user and entity behavior analytics, we're able to better identify suspicious, abnormal behavior and stop it accordingly." VARONIS unveiled the new version 7.0 of its data security platform for guarding against insider threats and cyber-attacks at the beginning of the year. The platform features enhanced threat identification and prevention functions, such as improved threat intelligence, new dashboards for better transparency and recommendations integrated into the user interface that customers can easily follow in the event of critical incidents.
